My wife and daughter went horsebacking for approx. 2hrs. My Son and I followed the trail. I was told the horses were great along with the guide. The trail went along a ridge that gave a beautiful view in both sides. If you decide to walk it be prepared it was well over 6 mile hike.

I was staying in Cuenca and looking for interesting things to do. I went to Ingapirca with a nice tour company (Arutam), and they did an amazing job. But for this, although there are many tour groups that will take you horseback riding, they charge you double the price to basically drive you to this ranch and let the ranch... More

We learned about Centro Ecuestre Bellavista by checking the "to-do's" recommended in Trip Advisor for Cuenca. It definitely is a unique experience that you should not miss. Sebastian, the owner of a complex, took us in a two-hour trip to the mountains that surrounds the place. Simpy, it is beautiful.

My husband and I went on a two hour ride with Sebastian - actually it ended up being more like 2.5 hours, so we felt like we got more than our money's worth. We climbed up up and up to the most amazing vistas. The horses were lovely and well cared for, and easy to ride. I'm a little nervous... More

A great way to start your morning! All the good comments are absolutely true! The horseback rides are around the country side of Tarqui, which is 20 minutes away from Cuenca. The horses are beautiful, well taken care of, well mannered and have personalities of their own, which if you wish you can learn all about. The views you see... More

We picked this horseriding centre as a direct result of other Trip Advisor Reviews, and we were not disappointed. Two middle aged novices were made very welcome, given very patient and mild mannered horses and guided for two hours around some stunning hills and farmland. Sebastian made us very welcome ( the setting of the centre is beautiful ) and... More

We both didn't had any experience with horse riding. So we didn't know what to expect. The horses were gentle, the owner was really nice and the views were amazing. It was definitely one of our best experience!

Wow! So glad my neice set this trip up to go horseback riding. She came from the States, and this was the top pick on her list of activities. We rode for two hours through the beautiful countryside. Sebastian, the owner, sent by email a taxi driver's name and number to use for transport to and from Gringolandia close to... More

Today I rode a horse for the first time. It was awesome!! Sebastián made sure that I had the right horse for my first ride. Constantina was perfect. The facilities are very clean and well maintained. The horses are healthy and appear to be happy. Never ridden a horse? Make sure you visit Centro Ecuestre Bellavista. Now I'm hooked. Looking... More

Went on a two hour trail ride with 8 other friends today. It was perfect fun! Sebastian was our guide. A sweetheart of a guy that speaks perfect English if you need that. The horses were not like some you may find in a trail facility. These horses were all healthy, clean and with pleasant personalities. Sebastian will give you... More
